More About Endings
The purpose of the Ending in plot and structure is to wrap up the main Action by scoring a Touchdown, getting That Thing (object, goal), and defeating the Antagonist, just when it looks like the Lead can't possibly Win. It should look like the Antagonist is just about to win, with a great sense of Forboding, when the Lead comes out of nowhere with a Victory.
As in my book LOST RELIC OF THE GODS (E-book and paperback) , my Lead must make a Sacrifice, like a certain goal, his personal safety or well-being, and it can be physical, moral, or Another sacrifice made with great courage.
The Result must be the Sacrifice and/or a Great Resolution of the Lead's Life or Life Situation. This is called Catharsis.
You might put a surprise twist on your original ending. Try writing five different endings, and really pour on the emotion, passion, originality, and Action (you can clean it up later.) Then, incorporate one of them into the Ending like a hot spice.
Now, let's look closer at Scenes.
